Default house of hardy reels

I was just curious if anyone has had any experience with their reels.

The ol' man has a LRH and loves the heck out of it. Spring/Pawl, makes a cool sound and very reliable. Good looking classic reel. (I just realized everyword in that last sentence had double letters):
God, I need to get out and fish some more.

Yes, I have a few including-
LRH Lightweight
Princess
Viscount 130
Viscount 140
Uniqua 31/2
Marquis 7
Perfect 33/8 RHW
Sunbeam 6/7
I love them all but the Uniquas,which are magnesium, show slight corrosion.
The checks on the Viscount 140s are a bit coarse.
Regards
iwalton

I've got 2 of the Bougle Mark IV(?) which is a repro of a 1908 (I think) model. I love them both. I don't have a bad word to say about them except that they were pretty expensive.

The hardy MLA is a great reel with a brake that would stop a bus, but sadly not made any more.
It may have been a little too expensive at around $700 for the reel and around $300 for the spare spools.
